La Familia Renacer 1,2 Group's story

Anita is the coordinator of her group La Familia Renacer (The Family is Reborn), and her story is representative of the members of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santiago, a city known for its tobacco production, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their three children.

Anita is excited to be taking out her fourth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business running a colmado, or small general store, by stocking rice, beans, cooking oil, spaghetti, sauces, and flour as well as a freezer in which to store goods. She will use the profits to save towards her dream of one day opening a supermarket. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Anita, Jacqueline, Ana, Marcos, Maria, Ana, Natty, Candida, Rosa, Emilia
